War Workers' Trip on
Red Cross Service
When our girls arc fired with patri
otism and long to serve their coun
try near the battle line, there are
many things to consider. Several of
Omaha's most charming daughters
will be within sound of the big guns
before many months have passed, in
the Ked Cross canteen service.
And, now the call has come for
stenographers, and many a girl bend
ing over her typewriter in a busy of
fice finds her ftnge . executing "yours
of the 4th instant received," while her
mind skips far away across the sea to
the Paris, where she might be using
her business knowledge to serve
These young women are rallying to
the cause splendidly and they, too,
will join the ranks of the uniformed
workers who board the huge gray
transports that slip out to sea under
the cover of darkness.
But, what shall they take on their
journey? The time-worn joke about
the bird-cage and the band box is
now obsolete, only a traveling bag
being allowed in" most cases. Life is
; reduced to the bare necessities and it
is .interesting to note just what are
considered necessities to the war
worker. The six most important
things include, first and foremost
shoes and stockings. With leather so
scarce in France that a pair of shoes
is the height of luxury, we can readily
understand why footwear heads the
list. Then comes sugar, that article
for which all the world is crying.
There is none to be had in some
parts of Europe and if one has a
, sweet tooth they must take their su
gar with them.
. The scarcity of fuel and the se
vere winter weather which looms
ahead accounts for the Sterno lamp
and solidified alcohol which is in
cluded in the list. These little lamps
are so convenient, for one can cook a
light supper in short order nnd when
you are starting out into the unknown
with no idea where you will find shel

The beautiful living room of the
Nelson B. LTpdike home was a bower
of green when the marriage of Miss
Hazel Updike to Lt. Nathan Robert

Wednesday. Palms and ferns were
used in profusion, with the red, white
and'blue of our national colors inter
mingled. Baskets of fragrant roses
were also used while the windows
where the ceremony took place, were
banked with the ferns.
To the soft strains of the harp,
played by Miss Marie Swanson, the
little flower girl, Miss Lorraine Up
dike, appeared in the doorway.
Gowned in a dainty frock of white
organdy.jhis little sunny-haired girl
was a veritable June rosebud herself,
as she scattered petals in the path
of the bride.
As the familiar "Here comes the
bride" sounded through the rooms.
Miss Updike entered, a charming pic
ture in her bridal gown of white lace
over flesh colored satin. Her long
tulle veil was caught with orange
blossoms and her bouquet a shower of
lilies of the valley, with tinv flags
fluttering among the fragrant flowers.

Thirty guests gathered about the
rose-laden table following the cere
mony when the wedding breakfast
was served. The guests were just
;!.e members of the two famib'es, and
they waved a last goodby to the
young officer and his young bride as
j,hey ran out to the waiting motor
which was to take them to the train.

Out of the woods ran a boy about
10 years old. While he was thin and
looked as if he had been half starved,
the sparkle of health was in his eyes
and his cheeks were red. He carried
a bunch of wild flowers in his hand.
"Here's the invisible fairy come to
see us," roared the giant.
Billy ran up to the stump and look
ed at Peggy with eager eyes.
"Oh, I'm happy because you have
come," he said in a gentle voice, "I
have so wished to know you. Daddy
giant has told me all about you, and
liow you turned him frm a lay trap
per into a busy war worker. And
I'm helping, too. I do a lot of woik
on the farm."
"I'm glad you are," said Peggy.
"And I'm glad to meet you. Some day
I want to have a long talk with you
about your home in Belgium."
"I have no home in Belgium any
more," said Billy Belgium sadly. "The
Germans have destroyed that. But
I'll tell you about what my home
once was and about the war."
"There's a war here now, between
the frogs and the snakes. That's
what I've come here to see you
about." Peggy turned to the giant.
"If you caught a lot of snakes alive
could you sell themf
"Sure I could," answered the giant.
"Museums and shows are always after
them and I'd like to do it, too, for
Billy and I are anxious to get money
to buy liberty bonds."
"Then I've got a 6cheme that will

"I know what strategy is," said
Billy. "It's the way in which little
armies beat big ones."
"You know a lot about war. Maybe
you can help me plan this one." Then
Peggy quickly explained her scheme
"You see the snakes are sure to
beat the frogs if they meet in a regu
lar battle," she said.. "They would
just eat 'em up. Yet that foolish Gen
eral Hopper hasn't sense enough to
see that, or at least he didn't until
that blacksnake .caught him. Perhaps
he knows better now. My scheme is
lay a trap for the snakes, get them
to chase the frogs and have them
fall right into it."
"That's a good idea," agreed the
giant. "And it is the only way. But
snakes are pretty wary of traps."
"Maybe we can drive them into this
one," said Feggy. "Could you get a

Private Recital in Omaha
Edouard Gregory Hesselberg, dis
tinguished Russian concert pianist,
who recently composed the national
hymn, "America, My Country," dedi
cated to President Wilson, spent
Tuesday in Omaha with Nathan
Rernstein. Hesselberg's hymn is en
dorsed by Lt. John Philip Sousa,
leader of the famous band, and is
now being sung in all army and navy
camps in the country.
Through the interest of W. R. Spald
ing, head of the national committee
for camp music, the hymn will be in
cluded in a songbook the government
is shortly to issue to every soldier and
sailor in the service.
The words to "America, My Coun
try" were written by the composer's
wife, Lena Shackelford Hesselberg,
daughter of Major General George T.
Shackelford of civil war fame, and a
cousin of Lord Admiral David Beatty
of the British navy.
Hesselberg, who is for a short
time connected with the University
of Nebraska School of Music, has been
concertizing for the Red Cross in the
